The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. Manufacturing Scale-Up of High-Purity Optical Ceramics

    SBC: Engi-Mat Co.            Topic: OSD04L01

    In this effort, nGimat will develop the capabilities to produce high-quality optical ceramic nanopowder for DoD applications such as laser and missile weapons and defense systems.Development of such capabilities will require improvements in current man...

  2. High-Energy, Long-Life Lithium-Sulfur Batteries

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: N152093

    Batteries with multi-electron redox materials offer promise for increased performance relative to state of the art lithium-ion batteries. Lithium-sulfur (Li-S) batteries have two electron cathode materials (in addition to a lithium metal anode) and better than two times the specific energy of Li-ion batteries.However, several issues have prevented Li-S batteries from becoming more commercially via ...

  4. SBIR Phase I: Music Education Through Composition on Mobile Devices

    SBC: Edify Technologies, Inc.            Topic: EA

    This SBIR Phase I project will culminate in an application which teaches beginners to compose their own music. Music is traditionally taught using physical instruments and sheet music, both of which are complex and present imposing financial and practical barriers to creativity. As a result, even though parents value music education highly and research has shown that studying music is beneficial t ...

  5. SBIR Phase I: Couragion STEM Career Literacy

    SBC: Couragion Corporation            Topic: EA

    This SBIR Phase I project will improve the awareness and perception of careers that require science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) competencies. Career influencers such as parents, educators, and counselors are often not in the position to inform students of potential options and expose unnecessary bias. If kids understood the opportunities, they could pursue academic pathways to amass ...

  8. SBIR Phase I: A Revolutionary Design for a Continuous Adiabatic Demagnetization Refrigerator

    SBC: High Precision Devices, Inc.            Topic: MI

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project will demonstrate the feasibility of a novel Continuous Adiabatic Demagnetization Refrigerator (CADR) design by building and testing a prototype. This new technology has the potential to greatly reduce the cost of ultra-low temperature research. Currently, if a researcher needs to keep an experiment below 0.1K for more than a few days, ...

  9. SBIR Phase I: Democratizing Computer Science Education through a Sustainable Peer Tutoring Community

    SBC: ACTIMATOR LLC            Topic: EA

    This SBIR Phase I project seeks to create an effective peer-tutoring platform for Computer Science (CS) education. Currently, the software industry in the United States is suffering from a shortage of 100,000 CS professionals per year. The root can be traced to the lack of CS preparation in K-12 education, where the majority of students do not receive proper CS education at school. While there is ...

  10. SBIR Phase I: Breaking the Cycle of Poverty, Unsupported Educational Pathways and Stagnant Social Mobility via Mobile Apps

    SBC: CyclusBreak            Topic: EA

    This SBIR Phase I project is targeted to support two end users; one being, first-generation college students who do not have the resources or college knowledge to get them through degree completion; and two, college advisors/counselors whose caseloads have reached insurmountable proportions making it impossible to provide quality attention to students with numbers spiking at rates not seen before ...
